Re: [Mod] Different textures for players [player_textures]

Hi dawgdoc, But my question is, it is possible to extend the mod so that it automatically search the database on the site mentioned above ( http://minetest.fensta.bplaced.net ), download the skin file automatically and use it as custom player skin. The thing with the ftp server was only an idea for...

Re: [Mod] Your Dad's Backyard Movie Night [movienight]

That doesn't look like a projector, at least not like the old reel to reel ones I recall from grade school. Nor like My Dad's Super8 projector that I still have in a closet. ;-}


Of course those projectors would be older than most of the devs and modders on this forum.

The Minetest version in the Ubuntu 16.04 repositories is 0.4.13. But it is easy to install 0.4.16 from the PPA .

Re: Up to 400,000 unique users* per week!

I see where the conversation diverged, it was over the word official. I originally used it referring to the repositories by the Distro providers.

That is the PPA to which I was referring. But as I understand it all PPAs are unofficial.

Re: Up to 400,000 unique users* per week!

The number of 0.4.13 clients beats even 0.4.16! How and why is that so? Sneak-glitch? Another reason could be that the most recent Long Term Support release of Ubuntu (Xenial - 16.04) and it's derivatives still have MT 0.4.13 in their official repositories. Players on Linux can get around this by i...
